PIGS CAN'T SWIM ~ HELEN PEPPE


Helen Peppe's memoir was at times funny and at other times sad. Being the youngest of 9 children she got less attention when she was younger and as the older children left, she got more attention. Some of the things that happened to Helen were downright inconceivable. Money seemed tight on their farm, yet there were 2 trips to Florida.

My favorite chapter of this book was when Eric kept giving Helen different animals.

There was teenage sex, smoking and since Helen was the youngest, she was on lookout patrol.

I was glad for the happy ending, but it seemed abrupt and I would have liked just a little bit more information between childhood and adulthood.

3.5 stars
